I'd also like to read a few more stories by Dini, as I loved his Streets of Gotham series.

Batman: Private Casebook is really good. That's another Dini/Nguyen collaboration. :)

Every Loeb/Sale collaboration on Batman is worth picking up!I kinda dislike Sale's art,but still it's a very powerful gn.You should check it out!

I'd like some marvel recommendations if anyone is able to help.

I'm trying to get back into comics (already asked for DC recommendations) and would like to try marvel after an unsuccessful stint reading Age of Ultron and Doc Oc Spiderman. Both of which let me down. Any ideas for the graphic novels rather than comics would be appreciated.

The x-men, wolverine and spiderman are my faves ;)

I keep hearing that Civil War is great, that's one I'll eventually get into.
Also the Infinity series.
X-Men I guess would be the Dark Phoenix Saga, plus Days of Future Past xD
Maybe that will help?
Sorry =[

Cheers Vamp and Bat404!!! Gonna spend some cash money on most of them! And add them to my amazon wishlist. Thought I'd ask for some recommendations in advance for some holiday reading.

@harv and Kac. Daredevil has never really interested me as he seems too much like a blind batman.

He's literally nothing like Batman. :oldyella:

He has one Batman rip-off villain and that's it - the two characters couldn't be anymore different. :)
